Good day everyone!
I was up before daylight this morning, making sure my girl was fed and taken care of, before she was off to take her ACT's. As the days go on, the more it's starting to sink in that I'll be an empty nester very soon. I still stop to wonder where time has gone. My baby is technically an adult, and headed into her last year of school, before moving on to college. *sigh* I'm thankful that she's such a great person, with a good head and a big heart. I know she'll go on to do great things.
Anyway, since I was up, I decided to participate in a few challenges. I actually made two cards. Here is the first.
I debated about whether or not to actually post this card. I had an idea in my head, but it didn't quite turn out how I wanted. And, I still suck at masculine cards. lol This paisley stencil from MFT though, is awesome! I can see many uses for it in the future. I was excited about using my new Abandoned Coral distress ink too. That baby had been sitting on my desk, unopened, for months. I guess this card isn't too terrible. I think it needs a little "something" though. Maybe I'll come back to it at a later date and figure it out. At least I've got another card for my stash. I'm going to submit this for the following challenges.
The Challenge #38: Coral, Navy & Kraft
Freshly Made Sketches #190: Sketch
Bloggers Challenge: For The Boys
Crazy 4 Challenges #290: Masculine Cards
Below is the second card I made.
This card was a bit over a week in process. I colored the image with my Copics (I know, right?! lol) while on layover in Dallas, a bit over a week ago. This is one of the better coloring jobs I've ever done, so I wanted to use it. I added a vellum sentiment, embossed in gold and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and called it good. I love how simple it is, and how the image stands out. These colors together are lovely as well. I'm going to enter this for the following challenges.
Word Art Wednesday #187: Anything Goes
Just Add Ink #266: Pink Pirouette, Night of Navy & Gold
YNS Challenge #16: Sketch & Color Challenge (I only used the sketch, manipulating it a bit)
That's all for me today. I'm going to attempt to take a nap, and catch up on some crafty YouTube videos. I wish all of you a great day!
